I am an Artist and a Writer.

I am a BIG Fan of Cartoons, Animated Movies
Comic Books (mostly Superheroes) and Video Games.

To list them all would take too long
(although, Sonic The Hedgehog, Batman, The Powerpuff Girls/Dexter's Laboratory
Danny Phantom/Fairly Oddparents, Looney Tunes and Transformers are my personal favorites)

So, let's just say I am a fan of MOST, if not all.

I also don't give a darn what Critics, Fanatics and Trolls think of my work.
I LOVE what I do...and, I wouldn't trade it for the world. Account:…

Due in part to :icondragonslayer32294: asking me what the voice of my character Dracon will be
in my My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic story entitled 'My Little Pony: Beyond Life and Death'

I've decided to post this journal entry, which explains just what he sounds like..and, his overall character.

SO..Who IS Dracon? I mean apart from being a green dragon who looks like Mushu from Mulan?

Well, as far as his VOICE goes, he is voiced by Max Casella.

OR, as we all know him best as..

Daxter with watercolors by MeiDesu

DAXTER. the "Orange Lightning" (ZA-ZA-ZING!!)

I will be honest with you all.
at the time of creating the character, I was rather confused at what Dracon's voice was going to be.

I already settled with him being based (in part) on Mulan's Mushu character.
so, for awhile. I thought his voice would be Mark Mosley (Mushu's secondary, and current voice actor after Eddie Murphy)

I also considered Lion King's Timon voices: Nathan Lane and Quinton Flynn.

BUT, when it became apparent that Dracon's total character was a practical mirror image of Daxter.
I settled with Max Casella, and everything just fell into place for me.

apart from the voice, Dracon and Daxter are similar in character and "physical appearance"
(by that, I mean that Dracon is pretty much the same size as Daxter. which is a bit bigger than Mushu, according to Kingdom Hearts.)

For visual aid, I have prepared some videos for you all (and, they are good ones.)

I'll start with a good one: The Jax & Daxter Trilogy Movie (with Character Commentary by Daxter himself!)

So, if you are willing to spend an hour and thirty minutes watching a compilations of clips
from the previous three JAK games, with Daxter (voiced by Max Casela, making it OFFICIAL, not Fan-Made)
giving "color commentary" on the whole thing..then, click the link and Enjoy.

Also, I am including: Daxter Death Commentary (and, other fun animations)
which is a fan-made video that is a compilation of all the witty one-lines Daxter says if Jak dies (some of with breaks the 4th wall)

Make no mistake, though. Dracon's backstory is ORIGINAL.

he a "dojan" dragon (a type of dragon that naturally resembles a lizard, just is able to magically transform into a "real" dragon for a short period of time. TEN MINUTES)
and, due to his greed and cowardice, was boot out of his colony. left to wander the Equestrian wilderness.

He would have been killed LONG ago, if not for the fact that he has sharp wit and enough cleverness and cunning to outsmart a fox.

in BLAD. he meets Alex Cosmos (plus, Alex Jr.) and deciding that it's much safer AND easier
to travel with somebody BIGGER than him, he managed to buy his way into being a traveling companion by convincing Alex Sr. that he needs a "foalsitter" in order to get things done.

When Chrysalis joined the team, he wasn't too keen on the idea on sharing space with a changeling queen (former or not)
BUT, if he wanted to keep traveling with company. he had to suck it up, and tolerate sharing space with somepony who keeps joking about skinning him and eating him.

Dracon later meets up with the only other dragon friend of ponies (Spike), and the become fast friends.

So, there you have it, Folks.
I hope this answered any questions you MIGHT have had on one of my favorite characters.

Problem: I don't know what You and your Girlfriend look like.
nor, do I have any idea on your personalities.

these minor details are rather important if you want to be written in.

Have you had a family member die 
MetroXLR99 Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist Writer
Just a brother who died of cancer.
BUT, I was a baby at the time, so the only one who was that deeply affected by it was my mother.

Since you've play ROTDS, I was thinking if the Dark Spark will appear in one of your TF crossovers.
MetroXLR99 Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist Writer
I 'ALREADY' had a "Dark Matrix" in one of my TF stories LONG before I ever heard the name "Dark Spark"

Part of me feels Hasbro totally ripped off my idea (another feels it was only a matter of time before they caught on at it.)'re rather late to the party on this one.

Well, I have seen quite a bit of those 30th Anniversary badges on the toys, and watermarks on The HUB channel.

Though, technically..It is alsy the 30th Anniversary of 'My Little Pony' as well
(as IT also had a cartoon dating back to 1984.)
